Suggestions needed for too much Pain

Hello All,

I am the son of a woman who has a very severe case of MS. She is practically immobile, has no balance, and struggles with almost every physical aspect of her day.

Hello everyone

Hello,
I am new here. I will spend hours reading the great posts! I did a search, however, and did not find a response. I am sure its here because it seems a common question.

How do I know what medication I should do? My Neuroligist said to go home and read up on them and pick one. Is this normal? How do I pick one?

I know basics, like how many times a day/week ...

Hi. i've recently been on holiday and whilst there, i was having difficulty swallowing. I felt as though something was stuck and it seems to be continuing, but not as bad at the moment.
Whilst i was resting at home, i had a funny sensation which is why i thought i'd check it out. When looking at some symptoms of MS, i had a few linked with my eyes where quite a few years ago, ...

Heat, MS and the disease process

It's widely acknowledged that heat makes MS symptoms more noticeable.

This is generally though to be because nerves transmit information faster in the heat and are therefore more likely to misfire in the case of MS.

Question about acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, cog function

Has anyone had any luck using acetylcholinesterase inhibitors like razadyne/ aricept to improve cognitive function?

My Doc prescribed razadyne, but insurance won't cover it unless I get a DX of Alzheimers. I'm not willing to do that. I saw and article not long ago where that dx. followed someone around on health records.

I'd be willing to try it out of pocket if it works.

I do so miss my brain....
